The Marin Siblings

Excerpt from Chapter 17-“Watching Their Dance”

Chapter 17-A Neurological Exam

“The morning Marcia was to learn her test results, I raised the shade in our bedroom and the sun poured in, brightening my mood for a moment.  Neither John nor I mentioned her as we got ready for work, and by the time I got to my office, my stomach was churning.  I had such a hard time getting anything accomplished, I grabbed a cup of coffee and went outside for a break.  I leaned against the building and prayed.

That evening, the room seemed to grow cold when Marcia called and I watched John’s reaction.  My big, strong man crumpled in front of me, slowly wilting and then bending in two like a broken twig. I grabbed the phone and said, “Hi.”  All of a sudden, Marcia started talking in a flat tone of voice.

‘You know, the last few months at work have been hard.  Many of my co-workers said I slurred my words and thought I was drunk.’  She paused for so long, I wasn’t sure she was going to continue.  After a minute, she blurted out, ‘I had to stop wearing high heels, because I was losing my balance.  My memory was getting so bad, I started writing myself notes.'”
